We all know how much I love yogurt. Creamy, flavored, plain, fruit on the bottom- I just love it! I also LOVE frozen yogurt. Red Mango is a place by me that makes good frozen yogurt-but it’s kind of far away. So, i was at Whole Foods yesterday and i bought Stonyfield Farm Organic Frozen Yogurt in the Cookies ‘n Dream flavor. I figured why not?
So today, as 3 o clock rolled around and my tummy began grumbling for something, i was about to reach for my usual, some soy crisps or a flavored yogurt, but -aha!- i have my frozen yogurt i can try! So i pulled out the container and took a couple big scoops and plopped them into the bowl. It looked promising-just like ice cream. But how did it taste? I took a nibble of the cookie wafer part- delicious! It tasted just like the chocolate cookie part of an oreo-just frozen. There were a lot of cookie chunks throughout the container as well-Stonyfield doesn’t scrimp at all and that’s a good thing! The frozen yogurt as a whole was amazing. It was creamy, melty, sweet but not overpoweringly sweet like some companies make their products. The cookie pieces were the best part. I made sure i picked a lot of those out when scooping out of the container (yes i am one of those people- like when you buy cookie dough ice cream and you make sure every spoonful you take out of the carton has some cookie dough in it-leaving little for the next person!!)It tasted sinful-but it wasn’t! It was lowfat AND had beneficial probiotics for my digestive system, along with 15% of my daily calcium needs in a 1/2 cup serving. Nice!
Stonyfield promises that their products only contain the “freshest all natural and organic ingredients. They are also produced without the use of antibiotics, synthetic growth hormones or toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. The result is a wide array of the purest, most indulgent treats you’ll find anywhere.”
I definitely felt good eating this- it was yummy AND good for me!
Each 1/2 cup serving is 130 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 25 carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of protein. My only complaint was that it lacked fiber-but it is yogurt. But they could have added some inulin to the product or something, but I’ll take it as it for now 🙂
